vegetarian | « 10 signs you may have an iron deficiency

Don’t eat meat? The recent popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets have led to a spike in iron-deficiency numbers in the western world. While the two are not always simpatico, if you do follow an animal-free diet, you are at a higher risk of being deficient in iron, due to the fact that our bodies absorb heme iron (which comes from meat) two to three times better than non-heme irons (the type found in leafy greens and legumes). If you don’t have a taste for fish or meat, be sure to stock up on these foods, and team them with vitamin-C rich ones like berries, citrus, broccoli and capsicum.
